the ball to ronnie hillman. he's seen a lot of action tonight. the san diego state rookie. 14 carries and 86 yards. broncos tonight, manning is manning and mcgahee with 122 yards on the ground. thomas, seven catches and a 20-yard average. and they have rushed the ball, have the denver broncos, for a total of 226 yards tonight. more yards and more td passes in four straight games. only steve young has done that in the past. we will go down to the final minute. a smiling manning and the denver broncos for the first time this year, have won back-to-back games. tough to see this one coming for the saints offense. the fact that they have been
11:31pm
shut down and jimmy graham and the gang will go back home and take on the philadelphia eagles a week from tomorrow. >> cris: watching willis mcgahee tonight and his performance made me think of a young man from south carolina, this marcus lattimoo d lattimore who had a devastating injury yesterday. mcgahee was drafted and had to sit out a year. look at him now. 31 years old and still going. marcus, a lot of football fans around the country are thinking about you and hoping it all turns out just like it did for willis mcgahee. >> al: i was watching that on television yesterday. the guys were talking about that exact same thing. you hope the result is the same. so colquitt comes in to punt on

fourth down. the saints will head back to louisiana with a mark of two wins and five losses to take on philly. and denver, next week, will go to cincinnati. fair catch called for. made by sproles at the 13 yard line. >> cris: i'd be hard-pressed to point out what i thought the flaw was in the broncos right now. they are so battle-tested after the teams they had to play, after the first seven games, get a guy like keith brooking come in here and sort of solidify the run game. a good-looking team right now. it really is. >> al: you know, brees reminds me when steve young, i think, was losing 40-8 at one point. george seifert tried to pull him and he said, "not a chance." here is brees. he just doesn't -- it may be a junk play that means nothing,
11:33pm
but he is going to take them to the finish line with a kneel-down. >> cris: like a krapt going down with the ship. >> al: that's a good way to put it. >> cris: see you at the bar. >> al: so the denver broncos dominate and win the game. the final score is 34-14. coming up next, it will be the wendy's postgame report. michele with a trio of broncos stars, as manning and brees exchange pleasantries. that is coming up after these messages from your local nbc station. .

11:58pm
wind, 75 miles an hour. northeast. 14 miles an hour. pressure done to 950 millibars. if it came ashored, an historic storm, pressurewise. by pressure, talking potential for strong wind. it is just one strong storm, look at the track. the latest track. still making its wayen through new jersey. potentially, delaware, our region, make its way out of our area. by the day on wednesday. let's talk about the storm implications for us. see the rain on the radar right now. just about everybody. seeing rain. light to moderate, most areas. heaviest rain toward the eastern shore. southern maryland. stom l some locations, two to five inches of rain. some totals, ten inches already. the band has been fairly stationary. now we are starting to see the rain, making the way across the region. see what i am talking about, west to east. the rain is coming. widen out. notice some of the first real
11:59pm
band of sandy in here. making their way to the beaches. another band will continue. that's what we will continue to see. banding is what will give us heavier wind gusts during the day,000 tomorrow. the band will eventually move into our area. show you this too. notice the white, yeah, snow. we have snow on the back side of a hurricane. and doesn't happen very often. happening out there right now. as far as sandy's impacts go. today, low impact across the region. highest impact towards the coast. down toward the coast of, north carolina. tomorrow, everybody gets in on the high impact. the wind will continue to increase during the day tomorrow. windy and very rainy, heavy rain at times. once again, rainfall, rates could be 1 inch an hour in some locations. the storm making its way on shore. tuesday. strong wind. we know that. coastal flooding. is a concern. not just at the beach. along the chesapeake and potomac river. heavy rain, power outages by far biggest factor here. hundred of thousands. millions without power along the
12:00am
i-95 corridor. upward. 20, 25 miles an hour. 30 miles an hour. pax river. tropical storm force out there toward the ocean city, maryland. this is what you can expect for your day on your monday. rain increasing. wind, 20, 30 miles an hour. 7:00 a.m. around noon. heavy rain. with wind of 30 to 40 miles an hour. stronger gusts. and then around 5:00, very heavy rain. and dangerous wind. gusts upward of 60 to 70 miles per hour. we have a whole shrew of watches and warnings out there, right now. chuck bell, storm center four with the latest on what to expect. chuck. >> thank you, doug. yes, indeed. high wind warnings posted all across the air y herea. they begin over the course of the next couple days. start at 8:00 tomorrow morning. here you can see the area, under the high wind warning. these go from 8:00 on your monday morning. to 8:00 on your tuesday night. now, as far as how much wind, and when. tropical storm force wind. that is a sustained wind of 39
12:01am
miles an hour or higher. that qualifies as tropical storm force wind. they could reach the d.c. metro area and be in the d.c. metro area, from about 5:00 monday afternoon, to 5:00 tuesday afternoon. now you folks, out closer to the chesapeake bay. you will have a longer period of stronger wind. you can see your tropical storm, or higher force wind. all the way from about 2:00 toemg aft tomorrow afternoon. sunset tuesday. that's what you need to be careful of. went gusts, 55 to 65 mile an hour went gusts. come all across the metro area. points north and west. but you folks along the chesapeake bay, could see wind gusting between 60, perhaps even more than 70 mild per hour. and that is primarily from about early tomorrow, until mid to late afternoon. on your tuesday. here is the potential wind. 7:00 on monday. look at these potentials for wind now. wind will be generally in the
12:02am
40s, 55 mile per hour range. could again reach 55 to 65 miles per hour. as we get into -- monday night into the early morning hours of your tuesday morning. before things finally start to die back down. once again. now, as far as -- rainfall and flooding potential. this is going to be a potentially big one. all along, 495. and the 270 corridor. northern prince george's county. ntgomery county. easily could see 5 to 9 inches of rain across the entirety of the event. a little lower. few folks towards the blue ridge. 3 to 5 inches. still a lot of rain. short period of time. flash flooding will be a huge concern. get a little further out into the southern end of the vally. 1 to 3 inch range. unfortunately for all our friend and neighbors on the eastern shore. 10 inches or more. i think will be very, very common place amount. out on the eastern shore. here is the way our computer models are generating in here. running all the way through the length of the storm now.
12:03am
5 to 6 inch rainfal totals on average around town. slightly lower amounts as you get further out to the west and the southwest. still, this has the potential to be a very devastating flood event. and of course you folks along the chesapeake bay, also have to worry about high tide. tides have been running 1 to 2 feet above normal for much of the day today. that could reach two to three feet above normal, on your monday. probably not as big of an impact on tuesday. but monday we could see some extreme high tide. and coastal flooding right along the side. the western side of the chesapeake bay. so, wind and rain, are going to be a big problem, over the next couple of days. doug, become into you. >> yeah, chuck, tell you what. over the next few days. tomorrow into the day tuesday. and even halloween. still talking about the impacts. take a look and show you what you can expect for the day tomorrow. we move on through. the four-day forecast. showing 53 degrees for your high temperature tuesday. only 47 on wednesday.
12:04am
matter of fact the numbers, a little bit off. it's 47 tomorrow. what we can expect there. plenty of rain. plenty of wind through the next couple days. once again, one other factor that we are going to be talking about. we look through the weekend. friday, saturday. sunday, monday. all looking good here. we will be droying out. three, four days. very hard for the power crews to get up and buckets. wind going to be 30, 40 miles an hour. even during the day tuesday. and into the day halloween. not to mention, a lot of people asking about snowfall. there is phone shall to see snow in the d.c. metro area for us. as this thing pulls out. if we get enough cold air. don't think it would stick. it would have to come down hard enough for the snow to reach the ground. that means you can see a heavier snowshower or two, on the back side. don't get out your shovels. not worried about any accumulation. one more thing this storm is going to bring us. you mention watches and warnings. a blizzard warning in garrett county, maryland.
